Originally scheduled for September 2020, and postponed as a result of COVID-19, Hostile Terrain opens Summer 2021.
MCLA students and faculty, in partnership with Gallery 51, are honored to partake in this participatory art project sponsored and organized by the Undocumented Migration Project (UMP), a non-profit research-art-education-media collective. The G51 Hostile Terrain exhibition is composed of ~3,200 handwritten toe tags that represent migrants who have died trying to cross the Sonoran Desert of Arizona between the mid-1990s and 2019 as well as the work of three west coast artists who were invited to broaden the many-sided conversation, representation and understanding of immigration to the US.
MCLA Gallery 51 is a program of MCLA’s Berkshire Cultural Resource Center. Go to: www.mcla.edu for gallery hours & more information or call 413-662-5324.
